As part of their effort to rebuild Quogue's beaches, the Save The Dunes Foundation is hosting a free screening of the documentary, Incredible Journey.'

The 92-minute historical documentary, according to filmmaker Yale Nelson, "traces the geological history of Long Island and the barrier beach, the formation of Moriches and Shinnecock Inlets in the 1930’s, the story behind the Westhampton Beach Groin Field, the beach erosion problems of the 1970’s and 1980’s, the devastation caused by the ocean-to-bay breach of 1992 and the birth of the village of West Hampton Dunes."

The film has received national attention, broadcast on PBS on 1999. 

This presentation of the film is free and open-to-the-public. It will be held at the Quogue Wildlife Refuge at 3 Old Country Road at 5 p.m. on Saturday, November 23.

The film will be followed by a panel discussion, including panelists West Hampton Dunes Village Mayor Gary Vegliante and Nelson.
"This is an inspiring role model movie about how nearby neighbors to the west of Quogue Village faced severe environmental issues including destruction of their oceanfront beach," said SDBF coordinator Danny Frank.
